The Karlmann King is a $2 million enormous ultra-luxury SUV built upon a Ford F-550

The Karlmann King is a $2 million enormous ultra-luxury SUV built upon a Ford F-550 104

Hey, rich idiots! Do you secretly crave the lumbering, workhorse-like driving style of a Ford F-550 Super Duty, but don’t ever want to do any actual work, and really want to let everyone around you know what a colossal, pampered dipshit you are without even having to open your vape-smoke and Cristal-filled mouth?

My fine dipshits, are you ever in luck: for only $2.2 million dollars you can have it all, if by “all” we’re talking about the ugly, hulking mountain of overpriced trash-garbage that is the Karlmann King.

This auto show is the debut of this massive SUV made from, it seems, the finest pureéd wealthy jackass, pressed via advanced manufacturing techniques into body panels that simultaneously evoke an artistic chimp’s drawing of a stealth tank, if that existed, and a tanned heir to some pharma fortune passed out on a chaise lounge with a healthy amount cocaine rimming his nostrils.

The Karlmann King website describes this abomination in predictably wacky English, saying:

“Exceptional, treasure in collection. Diamond cuttings, inspiration from falcon. Exclusive customization, every Karlmann is the unique one in the world. Karlmann, designed by a team consisting of over 1800 people, produced by a world top-level custom vehicle manufacturer from Europe, aiming to provide an exquisite collection to the world.”

Inspiration from falcon? What falcon? The kind of falcon that got caught inside a boulder made of 10,000 pounds of the very idea that wealth turns people into shit? Fuck off.

Look at the front end of this thing. It’s like the designers wanted to answer the question of what if angry, fascist chipmunks possessed highly advanced military technology that allowed them to build massive war mechs in their own image.

Here’s the brochure for the Karlmann King, which makes pretty clear the target demographic they’re going for:

Assholes.

Incredibly, for all of the bulk of this brute, it only seats four money-gorged morons. The rear is taken up by two massive alligator-leather slathered La-Z-Boy recliners, with a sort of glossy dance floor area in front of them that I guess will end up being spattered in cocaine, Ketel One, and vomit.

Here’s the area in front of the seats, complete with gold champagne flutes and a coffee cabinet and metric tons of deep-seated insecurity:

It also has a 45-inch screen and a (soon to be outdated) Playstation 4 and those seats are massage seats and, oh, who the fuck cares. This thing is awful.

Oh, and in case you’re thinking that I’m being a little harsh, and maybe this just isn’t my taste because I’m some miserable plebe who can’t appreciate real quality when it comes up and bites him in the ass with gold-and-Swarovski-crystal teeth, let me show you this detail:

The Karlmann King is a $2 million enormous ultra-luxury SUV built upon a Ford F-550 111

It’s not even raining or humid here, and this big stupid foglamp already has more condensation in it than the door to a hotel shower. They want people to pay two million dollars for this hunk of shit.

Also, check out the finish on the edge of this running board/shin destroyer:

The Karlmann King is a $2 million enormous ultra-luxury SUV built upon a Ford F-550 112

Nice job, fuckups.

This thing weighs either 9,920 pounds or 13,320 pounds if you bulletproof it, which you should, because this thing will make anyone at least consider putting some bullets in you, and uses Ford’s 6.8-liter V10 that makes 398 horsepower. That combination will get you to a top speed of 87 MPH, which means this obsidian shitbox going flat out can be passed by a Yugo.

Look, if you’re the sort of person who has over two million dollars to spend on a car, and you spend it on this car, then I think you should seriously consider that maybe you’re not qualified to own and spend money for goods or services.

The Karlmann King is a $2 million enormous ultra-luxury SUV built upon a Ford F-550 113

This thing is terrible. Ford should ban this company from using their honest, hardworking truck chassis as the basis of this pile. I hope there’s some humane act of regicide in the future for the Karlmann King.

An abnormal phenomenon on Earth captured from space: NASA and ESA have never seen such lightning

An abnormal phenomenon on Earth captured from space: NASA and ESA have never seen such lightning 114

The Atmosphere-Space Interactions Monitor (ASIM) observatory has recorded five blue jets , an anomalous type of lightning that strikes from the top of a thundercloud into the stratosphere. This is reported in an article published in the journal Nature.

On January 20, a video filmed from the International Space Station was posted on the channel of the European Space Agency, which puzzled all academics who study the atmosphere and build theories about how everything works there:

The 10 microsecond jets were sighted on February 26, 2019, near Nauru Island in the Pacific Ocean. One of the lightning flashes produced a jet that reached the stratopause – the boundary between the stratosphere and the ionosphere at an altitude of about 50 to 55 kilometers. In addition to the jets, “elves” were recorded, which are expanding rings of optical and ultraviolet radiation in the stratosphere, lasting no more than a millisecond.

Electrical phenomena in the upper atmosphere are poorly understood and attract a lot of attention from physicists from around the world. They are short-lived and vary greatly with altitude. 

Blue jets occur during electrical breakdown between the positively charged top of a thundercloud and the negatively charged air layer above it. As a result, a leader is formed – a conducting channel of ionized air, through which the discharge propagates. However, in this case, the radiation from the leader was weak, which indicates that the leader itself was short compared to the conductive channels of conventional lightning.

The blue jets belong to streamers – branched filaments of electrical discharges, similar to those generated by Tesla coils. In addition, blue jets are more likely to occur as a phenomenon than previously thought.

Some of the most mysterious are the “elves”. Their name comes from the abbreviation ELVES , which stands for “Emission of Light and Very Low Frequency perturbations due to Electromagnetic Pulse Sources.”. These phenomena reach four hundred kilometers in diameter and occur at an altitude of about one hundred kilometers. The list of optical phenomena associated with electrical discharges in the upper atmosphere does not end there. There are also TROLL , Pixie , Ghost, and Gnome , but their nature is even less understood. 

There is nothing like this, that is, such strange huge lightning has never been observed before. Something is happening in the Earth’s atmosphere, and it started quite recently. How it will end and what will result in – we do not know, since people living today have no such experience.

Ancient asteroid sent dinosaur bones into moon

Ancient asteroid sent dinosaur bones into moon 115

The impact of the asteroid that destroyed the dinosaurs 66 million years ago was so powerful that it sent into space huge volumes of earth’s soil and rocks from the crash site. But together with them, he could send into orbit the remains of living beings, including dinosaurs.

Such a possibility is discussed in the book “The End of the World” by the scientific journalist and winner of several awards Peter Brannen, according to the Daily Mail.

It is known that an asteroid or meteorite about 10 km in size collided with the Earth 66 million years ago, forming the Chikshulub crater on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. About 15 trillion tons of ash and soot were thrown into the air. Because of  this, during the day it was dark on Earth, like a moonlit night.

As a result of the lack of light in plants, photosynthesis slowed down, which could lead to a decrease in the concentration of oxygen in the atmosphere. Temperatures on continents dropped by 28 ° C, in oceans by 11 ° C. The disappearance of phytoplankton has led to the extinction of zooplankton and other marine animals. Other species died after them. 

This is one of the largest mass extinctions in the history of the Earth, which is called the Cretaceous-Paleogene. Brannen, trying to make the numbers more descriptive, points out that the asteroid (or meteorite) was larger than Everest and crashed into the atmosphere 20 times faster than a flying bullet. At the same time, the pressure of the atmosphere was so strong that a crater in the Yucatan began to form even before the asteroid fell.

The “response” release of soil into the atmosphere occurred only within a second or two after the impact and was incredibly powerful.

“So there are probably little pieces of dinosaur bones on the moon,” Brannen suggests.

Loud booms, glowing rings and asteroids: The Earth’s magnetic field began to periodically disappear

Loud booms, glowing rings and asteroids: The Earth's magnetic field began to periodically disappear 116

Recently, scientists have begun registering too many anomalies associated with the Earth’s magnetic field. It periodically weakens or disappears altogether, deforms and twists. Experts cannot yet say for sure what is happening to the planet.

American researcher James Kaufman published interesting results: for some reason, the density of the solar wind in the nighttime part of the planet is much higher. As soon as the sun rises, this density begins to decrease.

Loud booms, glowing rings and asteroids: The Earth's magnetic field began to periodically disappear 117

Previously, the solar plasma went in the direction of the orbit of Mars and other planets, but now it moves in the opposite direction from the globe.

It is impossible to find an explanation based on existing physical laws. Some have put forward the incredible hypothesis that the Sun has turned into a black hole and is now close to the Earth.

According to some researchers, this could lead to the fact that the radiation does not move from the Sun to other planets, but from Pluto to the Sun.

According to other experts, on the side of Mars there may be a massive body, the radiation of which is comparable to that of the sun. A second stream is created, which blows off the Earth’s plasma and carries it to the Sun.

The presence of such a space object could explain the multiple increase in the number of meteorites, comets, asteroids falling to the Earth and flying past it – which can be a cloud of debris going in front of such a huge object. 

The closer this object approaches the Earth, the more falling meteorites will be, and as the object approaches, the size of the meteorites falling to the Earth will increase. Then, loud boom sound are getting more intense and sun-like objects appear out of nowhere:

As far as we know, neither the airlines nor even the Pentagon have such devices. Moreover, the thing was somehow very powerful, since its brightness is phenomenal – the light sources merged into one and illuminated the entire space around.

Strangesounds.org, have prepared an excellent overview of the so-called “booms in the sky” that have been roaring over the United States lately:

People hear a rumble, as if the fighter took the sound barrier directly overhead. But – no one sees any planes anywhere. Unfortunately, it is very rare to “photograph” the crash, but it so happened that one woman accidentally filmed how her door to the veranda began to shake from this “boom in the sky”:

What kind of object could it be and create all these anomalies? For example, a wandering planet, the same mysterious planet X (aka Nibiru in the ancient epic of the Sumerians)?.

These are only assumptions, and it takes time to find out what is really happening with our planet.
